I think so. Since he said:

"NOw I'm officially legal for both IL2 and IL2 FB".

I just wanted to say I was legal now in owning both copies. Is that a crime?

It meant I wasn't legal before. I have bought both games now so I'm legal.

Wait, so you've been warezing the sims, and now that you finally bought them, you come here looking for what, a cookie?

No, just saying I bought them instead of having illegal copies forever and not giving the makers their $$. Geez, here I am admiting I went out and paid for them cause I beleive it's worth it and I'm getting flack for it.

Next time I'll keep my mouth shut and continue to warez them.

Having illegal copies to begin with was the first mistake. Admitting to it was just plain dumb.

No, you're getting flak for having warezed it to begin with. Why the hell do you think everyone would pat you on the back for buying a copy just like the rest of us did in the first place?

You don't get brownie points for ceasing illegal activities and joining the rest of the law abiding world.

You don't get a pat on the back, you don't get a lollipop, and you just don't seem to get it either.


- Next time I'll keep my mouth shut and continue to
- warez them.

And the stupidity continues.

Here's how it should have gone, listed in 3 examples, in order of intelligence:

1. CDN_Merlin sees IL-2 and FB, likes them, and buys a copy of each to enjoy legally. All is good, and no one gives him flak about warezing software.

2. Failing example 1, CDN_Merlin decides to warez IL-2 and FB, but decides they're "worth it" and goes "legal" by actually purchasing the software he's been using and enjoying for some time now. He tries to be a bit smart about the whole thing, and says nothing of this to anyone, satisfied with himself that he ultimately did the right and honorable thing by going "legal". No one gives him flak about warezing software because no one knows.

3. Same as example 2, except CDN_Merlin feels like he should be praised or treated in some special way for actually paying for his copy like all of the rest of us. He goes to the official IL-2 forums and tells everyone, "Hey! I stopped warezing, aren't I great?".

Much to his confusion, people don't think he's great and fail to heap praise upon him for doing what he should have done in the first place. Instead they all point and laugh and lose much respect for him because he warezed it to begin with, was dumb enough to admit it, and then actually seemed to expect that people would respect and admire him for what he did.

So what have we (hopefully) learned?

A. Don't warez it to begin with.
B. If you do warez it, and then go legal, don't go telling everyone what you did.

I love the title of the thread too. He's asking us if we're doing what he did. Funny guy.
